Brazil eliminates Zambia

The only African representative in the women’s football event at the Tokyo Olympic Games, Zambia is eliminated. After their rout against the Netherlands (3-10) then their encouraging draw against China (4-4), the Cooper Queens lost on the smallest of margins against Brazil (0-1) on Tuesday and finished 3rd in their group.

Author of two hat-tricks in the first two games (an Olympic record!), striker Barbra Banda this time remained silent and Andressa Alves scored the only goal of the game for the Brazilians (19e), who advance to the quarter-finals with the Dutch.

The final classification of group F: Netherlands 7 points, Brazil 7 pts, Zambia 1 pt, China 1 pt
